Steven Tyler Itching to Make a Solo Record
Steven Tyler of Aerosmith has some catching up to do. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the rocker points out that bandmate Joe Perry has four solo albums under his belt and he feels its his time to shine on his own.
I've got this itch in me to do a solo record, and that's what I'm gonna do next. I've got some great people that want to get involved in it. It's early on right now, but that's the itch I got. I got that itch to do something that's a lot different than Aerosmith. Aerosmith's never been better, but we did that album. This last album was an Aerosmith all-for-one-and-one-for-all. But my heart is in stuff like that weirder, off-the-cuff stuff that I'm not sure Aerosmith would like. I'm into electronica – I was when I used to listen to Stockhausen in '65. So there's just a lot of stuff – good, weird fucking music that I want to get off my chest. The band will be playing, and we're going to China and Singapore. It's gonna open up a whole new world for Aerosmith. So Aerosmith will always be around, but I got this itch and I know how to scratch it.Tyler went on to say he would like to work Skrillex, of which he is a huge fan, and that he has already med with Deadmau5.
